Scott Stanger Photo shoot

October 7, 2017 § 2 Comments


I had the pleasure in doing a photo shoot with Scott Stanger, whom travelled all the way from New York to visit Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh. During his visit to Glasgow we got together for a photo shoot at some of Glasgow’s unique backdrop’s.

Below are just some of the photos from our shoot.

A big thank you to Yemi King for being my amazing lighting assistant .

Scott’s amazing sense of classic/vintage style (see his instagram) allow me to experiment in different picture styles. Such as colour, black and white and Sepia. I love the fact Scott Stanger suits them all.

Super busy

August 7, 2017 § Leave a comment


I have been super busy this Summer and cannot complain. Below is a mixture of personal and commercial work.

I had a real rare pleasure photographing Photographer, Director and Chancellor David Eustace at his house in Edinburgh. From the minute he opened the door to saying goodbye, he was a total Gentlemen. David gave me free reign of his house and let me do my thing, not once suggesting this or that. It made me respect David even more.

I am working on a long term project of top Scottish figureheads in the arts, culture and entertainment industry and David is up there on a global level.

I went with two setups. One with natural light beaming into David Eustace’s hallway. The second was a three speed light setup.

With Glasgow having a couple of real sunny days, it was a real pleasure to shoot a lot of property for DJ Alexander. With such examples as below:

At the beginning of July, I finally got to meet and photograph Bill Wilson. We have known each other online (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) for a short while. And we both got the time in our hectic schedules to go ahead with a portrait shoot. Bill is stylish charismatic, creative and a businessman. To me a fantastic quality combination. For this shoot, I used a 32″ Westcott Rapid Duo softbox.

I have a photo shoot for a client later in the year, and wanted to nail some test shots. I used myself as the test subject and practice various combinations. I photographer should always be practising and innovating. I had fun creating this scene below from a boring grey overcast car park to something vivid and cinematic. I used gels on my lighting to achieve this look.

As a photographer is pays to always carry a camera with you. And when I don’t have my large DSLR camera on me, I will always have my trusty Ricoh GR. One of the mornings I was out early. It was amazing fog and the sun was beginning to rise in Glasgow. I had to quickly park the car and capture it.

It was great to catch up with fellow photographer Peter McNally, as we have some future plans on a Glasgow Project. I could not resist capturing a portrait of Peter, as he has done the same for me over the years. I think Peter McNally looks superb in this shot below.

Time to leave Glasgow now, and head up north to the Highlands of Scotland. I needed to scout a couple of locations up there in the magical lands. I also photographed a few of the the more touristy places for my own, as the ever changing light and colours was a feast for the eyes and soul.

Back to my home city of Glasgow, and hired by Chris Grant of Parkour Generations Glasgow. We did some head shots and lots of action shots. Below is just a taster, as photos will be released throughout the year. If you are in Glasgow, and would love to learn Parkour, check out Chris Grant’s Parkour classes.

From outside to inside now working with talented Sarah Haran of VVA, for an event “An Evening of Style” in Glasgow’s Gusto Restaurant. I have shot many events, and feel at home photographing interesting people enjoying a good night.

It is nice now and then to come out of my little bubble, and see what else is happening out there. So when i got an invite from Simon Murphy to his exhibition in Govanhill Baths, I went along and really enjoyed it. Simon Murphy’s work was strong and memorable with the Photographic prints on the wall in each bath cubical.

So what is next?

Well there have been meetings had for future shoots, so watch this space. In the meantime this envelope came through my door…

I managed to travel up North to the Scottish Highlands.  And capture some of the gorgeous, ancient, rugged landscapes the Highlands had to offer.

Back in Glasgow the weather was beautiful, and so I made the most of it, below is a small example of Glasgow in the rare sunshine.

It was also nice to pop along to the 13th note in Glasgow and capture some photos of Gavin MacQueen at his fantastic photo exhibition.

Also a real pleasure to meet and listen to Poetry from Scott Finlay.

It was also very nice to have my work recognised by Glasgow Live and People Make Glasgow

I have also been busy working on two Street Photography projects at the same time. “Streets of Glasgow” and the “Streets of Blackpool” with the aim to release to books in the near future. Some of this work can be found in my Instagram
